OBD II Scan tool canít connect to 2005 Taurus computer

I have a 2005 Taurus with a Vulcan and my new OBD II scan tool by OBDwiz will not connect with the computer in the car. Any ideas? By the way I have no CEL. ThanksÖ

have you used a scan tool before? If so, check for blown fuses at the car.

DOe your cig lighter work? If not, check the cig lighter fuse. OBDII port 12V is on the same fuse. If cig lighter works, its your scan tool.
